Nearly 14 years later...

(This post is a blatant attempt at avoiding the 5 baskets of laundry
waiting to put folded and put away)

The above picture is me almost 14 years ago. I was 7 months pregnant (it was a size 5 for heavens sakes!). I've moved seven times since that picture. I most likely donated it to a thrift store pretty soon after I wore it during one of those moves (within a few years anyway) anticipating that a single mother would never need a formal dress. I've been to only 2 formal events since then but only shopping for a formal dress once. It stands to reason that it would be one-in-a-million to find the exact same dress while shopping for a formal dress yesterday. It was my size and the label said it came from the store that I bought it at the Parks Mall originally - Agaci. I wish I were creative enough to write a story about it's life until now.

It's a wee bit tight (4 babies ago!) but I still love it. I hope it is not out of style (was it ever in?) because I plan to wear it soon.


  1. I think that's awesome. Thank you for sharing and I'm a proud supporter of 'personal' style (meaning if YOU like it, you think it looks good on YOU, and your family and friends aren't ashamed to be seen with YOU) it's IN! It's the latter part of that description I sometimes have trouble with, ;).

    1. Haha! Well the latter part is to be determined by my husband and teenage daughter!

  2. Awesome coincidence and story ◔_◔

  3. So is this one the exact same dress? Same size 5?

  4. Wow, I remember that dress! Awesome.

  5. NICE WORK!! Definitely impressive. What a small world. :-)
